BERLIN — The far-right Alternative for Germany has turned German politics on its head, but leadership squabbles threaten to derail the party’s rapid rise.
Founded in 2013 as a protest party calling for the abolition of the euro and an end to bailouts given to EU members, it has developed into a far-right force to be reckoned with and now takes aim at Chancellor Angela Merkel’s refugee policy and the role of Islam in Germany.
It’s a strategy that’s working, with opinion polls putting the AfD at 12 percent support. In March it had its best-ever results in three state elections.
